“We came out strong like we knew we could,” said head coach Jennifer Rockwood.

“This win is a step in the right direction. The two goals were big for us.”

Freshman goalkeeper McKinzie Olson recorded her first career shutout and notched two saves.

Two Cougars tallied their first goals of the season in the winning effort. Junior midfielder Whitney Feller scored in at the 32:21 mark when she was able to corral a loose ball in the box that had bounced off the goalie and put it in to the goal.

Four minutes later, freshman forward Jennie Marshall found the back of the net of the first time as a Cougar when she was able to score off of another rebound that Idaho State freshman keeper Bailey Williams was unable to contain.

“We knew we had some good freshmen,” said Rockwood. “They’re contributing and continuing to come through for us.”

The Cougars took the 2-0 lead to halftime. They outshot Idaho State 13-4 in the first half.

BYU was apply to apply consistent pressure throughout the second half, with 14 shots on goal, but wasn’t able to get the ball past Williams.

The win pushes BYU's record to an even 4-4-0, while ISU drops to 2-4-0.
